About Project 365

Thanks for stopping by my blog! This is Year 2 of my Project365 blog. What is a Project 365? It's a photo challenge involving people from all over the world posting one photo per day throughout 2011. Some photographers choose themes, however for now my photos will be totally random. I will be shooting with my Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi-18-55mm, 75-300mm zoom and 100mm 2.8 macro lenses. I edit in iPhoto and Photoshop Elements 9. Not all photos are "perfect"; the purpose is to make photography an everyday event.

I am not a professional. Photography has always been a diversion of mine. I am a primary grade teacher and passionate tech. enthusiast. I consider myself an experienced amateur with LOTS to learn!

You will find links to other photographers in the sidebar- do check them out! I have also joined the Flickr EdTech 365/2011 Group, and you can click this link to view the entire pool. I will be posting my photos to their group pool, as well as here on my photo blog. I welcome your constructive criticism!


1. Photos are to be taken in 2011.
2. Post your own work only.
3. Images may be edited or unedited- your choice.
4. Keep your images, text, and comments appropriate for all ages.

Memorial Day

Three holidays a year (Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Veteran's Day) my town erects over twenty flags in rows in a small town park. The flags are loaned for the day by families bestowed with each flag upon the death of their loved one. It's a beautiful sight, both on a patriotic, as well as artistic level. I'm afraid I didn't do it justice, but hope you'll enjoy a bit of the beauty!


  1. Kristy, I think you did a great job. I really like the one with the flags flapping in the wind - the perspective is really nice and the way you composed it with the empty sky above is interesting (in a good way!). REally nice way to commemorate the day...

    I'm actually seated just across the living room from my father's folded U.S. flag. He was very proud of his service during WWII and it gives me a lot of pride to have the flag here with me.


  2. Outstanding capture. Its beautiful it both spirit and composition.

  3. I love the perspective of the lower shot, nice!
